I’ve heard of people saving it to make christening gowns for future children. No ideas for your mom though, sorry..

I was planning on using some scraps from my dress as the fabric on my bouquet holder, but the alterations lady forgot to save some. Maybe you could try that? 

I’ve also seen embroidered handkerchiefs for mom’s – maybe you could have some of the fabric sewn on like a border and have a note or something embroidered on for your mom?

You could incorporate it into a quilt (have any other ‘keepsake’ fabrics?), or make a pretty purse lined with it, or make rosettes out of it and give her a bouquet/broach/hairpin, or … well, almost anything!

I like the idea of turning it into a handkerchief, or incorporating it into her corsage or something.  It would also be cute wrapped around your bouquet.

I’m using the extra fabric & lace that was taken off of my dress to make my wedding day clutch/purse.  I like the idea that it’s going to match my dress exactly!

Maybe have a wedding photo framed and the fabric as matting around the photo… You could do one of those shadow box frames depending on how much fabric you have…and add some texture to the fabric. (kinda hard to describe my thought)

I would keep mine for a bapstimal gown for my babies, you could also use some of the fabric to wrap your bouquet.

I love the quilt and clutch ideas as well!

I love the clutch idea!  Or how about as a capelet or bolero for your mom?
